Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month
National Hispanic Heritage Month begins each year in the U.S. on September 15 – independence day for several Latin American countries. For the 30 days that follow, the nation recognizes the contributions of Hispanic/Latino Americans to U.S. history, culture, political life, science and more.
In honor of this year’s celebratory month, we wanted to introduce you to three Hispanic-American women who’ve made a significant contribution to HSBC. Now all based in Miami and working for HSBC’s Commercial Bank, Cary Alfonso Figueroa and Caroline Sanchez are Senior Relationship Managers, and Milagros Resto is a Market Executive.
Cary has been with HSBC for about two years and is responsible for the sales, service and risk management of a portfolio of commercial customers. “I was drawn to the opportunity to work for a truly international bank and to be part of a talented team of people who support companies as they grow their businesses,” she says.
Caroline joined the bank nearly 15 years ago as a Relationship Manager in Government and Institutional Banking in Washington, D.C., initially for the Latin America region. “I was then promoted to manage the entire portfolio in Latin America and Spain,” explains Caroline. “My clients range from embassies and consulates, to diplomatic offices and foreign government representations – both here in the U.S. and abroad.”
Milagros, or Mila, was recruited almost 10 years ago to help launch HSBC’s LATAM desk in Miami. “The bank wanted to capitalize on Miami’s location, as well is its business opportunities and the cultural heritage that connects the city with Latin America,” she says. For the last two years, Mila has been overseeing business development, sales and relationship management across Florida.
Building Trust through Heritage
All three women agree that their heritage has been critical to developing relationships with their Latin American client base.
